The Gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone!

I love General Conference! One more session to go- I am going to put more effort into studying the messages when they come out in the Ensign. They are so awesome and uplifting and I almost never go back and read them again unless I'm preparing a talk or a lesson that applies. Particularly today I loved the story of the Amish community who forgave the man who shot the girls in the school. That was such a terrible story, but to hear about the outpouring of love and forgiveness in that community was so inspiring. It made me think about the fact that there are dedicated followers of Christ all over the world, in many religions- many of them more faithful and dedicated than me, and that simply being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints doesn't give me any special consideration- "for He shall reward every man according to his works." Live your religion!
That probably belongs in my journal more than my blog, but if I save it for that it might not get written down. So thanks for letting me share here. :-)

I have that picture hanging in my living room. It's my favorite! Conference was good; I missed some of it so I planned on studying them when they come out in the Ensign. I always get more out of it when I read it after hearing it, too.

no! I think you are awesome. It is all about living your religion. Too many people are afraid to put it out there, but that is who we are. I had a friend in Kentucky, laugh and say you always are talking about your church. I said yep! That is my life. That is what I do. I want my kids to know I have a testimony, and the more you share it the stronger it grows! You rock! Can I say once again....boy I wish we lived just a wee bit closer!
